Most countries part of nuclear talks with Iran agree with EU proposal – Borrell

The majority of nations involved in nuclear negotiations with Iran support a proposal made by the EU that aims to save the 2015 nuclear agreement, according to the EU’s foreign policy leader Josep Borrell.

In an interview with Spain’s national station TVE, Borrell said, “Most of them agree, but I still don’t have the answer from the United States, who I understand have to discuss it, and we hope throughout this week to receive an answer.”

Borrell said Iran has asked a few adjustments to the EU proposal – which was not made public – that followed 16 months of fitful, indirect U.S.-Iranian talks with the EU shuttling between the parties. He had said on Monday he considered Tehran’s answer was “reasonable”.

Iran has been negotiating with the five permanent members of the UN security council plus Germany and the EU to revive a 2015 agreement former President Donald Trump reneged on three years later.

Since then, the U.S. reinstated tough sanctions on Iran, which began breaching its limits on uranium enrichment.
